In terms of living, this was by far the best place for me. Been to 3 guest houses during my 1 month stay in Korea.
Stayed in a single bed, private room with outside window.
-Room was small, however not a problem and was adequate for sleeping and personal belongings. Looking for a place to crash, this room was great. Free wifi, fridge, small desk, and small tv was in the room.
-Multiple stalls and shower stalls, and adequately clean. Shower stalls had good water pressure and water that was more than hot enough. Had a problem with low water pressure and not hot enough water in previous guesthouses.
Overall, the place was clean and great in terms of needing a place to rest, sleep, and whatnot. If your one of those who cares about the “creature comforts,” then this place is obviously not for you. Those who are backpacking and don’t really need a big space and a lot of accommodations, then this place is perfect. By the way, I brought a huge luggage with way too many clothes for my trip, and the room was still was adequate enough.
-Very close to subway station, literally a minute away from seocho station exit 1. There are plenty of bars and restaurants around the apartment as well as CVS type store right in the corner. This made it very convenient to travel using the subway and getting food and water.
Host (Jinwoo Jang)
- Met him as soon as I arrived, and gave me a quick tour and also helped me bring my luggage to the 4th floor (no elevator). I didn’t get much interaction with him, but seemed like a nice guy and made sure everything was all right when I moved in. I would gladly book this place again should I visit Korea again.
Decent place to stay if you're on a budget and traveling alone. The shared showers were not bad but could use a real good cleaning. ****Please note that once you arrive you will be asked for a 10,000 won key deposit which is not mentioned in the listing so make sure you have some cash.****
This location was quiet, secure, close to the subway line, and easy to get to from the Central City Bus terminal. For the price I would definitely stay here again.
For that price its okay! I stayed in a room with an outer shower! well can't complain! and Jinwoo is very nice! will revisit there again!
Cosy, clean, very close to the metro, with tons of restaurants and convenience stores in the area. Good bang for the buck. Highly recommended for any budget-conscious traveler!
PS. About the metro directions from the airport, in case you are confused (I was...), please note that Hongdae = Hongik University.
